    I've graphed the range on a number line and then placed the 4 possible choices. Which one do you think is within the range (blue line) and closest to -4?

    The first two are our of range:  -18 to -4 .

    The third is closer to -18 than to -2 .

    However, -6 is closer to -4

    -6 fits                                            .

    The integers that are less than −4 but greater than −18 are:-

    -5, -6 – 7, - 8, -9, -10, -11, -12, -13, -14, -15, -16, -17

    those that are nearer to – 4 are:- -5, -6 – 7, - 8, -9, -10,

    The only match amongst the values

    −2, −19, -17, −6 is -6

    ….. integer that is less than -4 greater than -18 …..

    -18 < x < -4

    ….. closer to -4 than -18

    halfway between -18 and -4 is ½( -18 - 4 ) = -11

     -11 < x < -4

    ….. number that fit this domain...

    x = { -10, -9, -8, -7, -6, -5 }

    so considering the given options -6 is the solution

    The integer is -6

    can't be -2 or -19

    and -6 is closer to -4 than it is to -18

    -2 is greater than -4, so we can throw that out.

    -19 is less than -19, so we can throw that out.

    -17 is in the range but is closer to -18.

    -6 is in the range and is closer to -4, so that's the answer.
